Every May, the Faculty Center hosts the Summer Faculty Development Conference for 3½ days in the week following final exams. Full-time faculty members submit proposals to transform courses or programs according to goals and objectives related to a conference theme. Two to three hundred faculty join colleagues from across the university to attend keynote and concurrent sessions, engage in hands-on workshops, and devote allocated time to their specific projects. Selected faculty members who attend all sessions and submit the required deliverables receive an $800 grant subject to normal withholding tax. The call for proposals usually goes out toward the end of January.
